Found this plant in Japan in the Chiba area called locally “tsunonasu”.  It looked so fascinating that I just had to pinch its seeds!!!  Although people say that the fruits look like the nipples on a cow’s udder, to me it looks like the face of a cow or even a mouse.  It is widely used in floral arrangements in Japan and there is a local farming industry that churns out these exotic looking branches.  While the fruits are inedible and considered toxic,  they have “flokloric” uses for treating asthma and used as a detergent for washing clothes as well. However, its widest commercial used is in floral decoration.  Will await someone to start this in India!!!

10 seeds per packet
